Cooking on the move

Last weekend whilst on our way to Dorset, the wife was cooking a meal for us to have on our arrival at our campsite. Unfortunately by the time we arrived most of the food was splattered all of the kitchen and what was left in the pans ended up on the floor when I drove the van up the levelling ramps.

Does anyone know if there are any devices available for holding pots and pans still whilst cooking on the move?

Is this a joke? Can someone really be so stupid as to drive around with pots bubbling on a gas ring?

Just imagine the fun you'd have in a severe crash when the boiling Lancashire Hotpot splattered all over the back of your neck, although to be fair you probably wouldn't notice it, as the pan, which had just struck you at 60 mph would have knocked your head off.

Please tell me that you're winding us up.

I sincerely hope that this is a wind up? No sensible person would cook on the move ......... they would be contravening the seat-belt Laws to begin with and probably be liable for an 'un-safe' load too. It's better to make a casserole at home, decant it into a heat-saver container/flask so it can be carried safely. It only needs heating up in the microwave on your arrival at the camp site - much safer and cleaner; and why should *your wife* be cooking

You and 'the wife' are either totally nuts or you have a very strange sense of humour, I look forward to finding out which.

Have heard of a woman who ironed while on the move. Am not sure whether that was true too.

Please don't mention the cruise control and making tea, that's been doing the rounds for years.

Thanks for your comments and advice; I’ll tell the wife no cooking while we’re travelling.

Would it be ok if she were to prepare a salad without the hard boiled eggs?

This is one of the best laughs I've had in a while! 

This is funny, right?

Will admit to the wife putting the kettle on on the M25. It was stationary at the time and a cuppa makes it seem much more civilised!

You'll never find out.  If it's a joke he'll spoil by saying so, and if he was serious he'll be far too embarrassed now to admit it!

As a talking point I would say it is possible to cook on the move and you can get the equipment to do it, just go down your local boat chandlerer, but saying that I've never been in a boat that stops as quick as a motorhome but I've cooked when rolling about a lot more than in any motorhome

I watched the Grand Prix on the move and had to keep retuning the tv.
I even tried to smoke a pipe on a motor bike ( no Ash trays fitted)

Its got to be a wind up
Road traffic act says you are carrying a passenger in a dangerous position dont mention pots and pans flying around lol

Nah!  The passenger sits serene and belted at the motorhome dining table.  Before him/her are two metal or ceramic plates of raw meat and vegetables.  Beneath the plates is one of those plumber's heat resisting mats (you know, for soldering pipes against flammable substances).  In his/her hands are a blowlamp, and a box of matches.  Who needs cookers?

The Other Half says whats wrong with a "boil in the bag" meal stuffed in the radiator expansion tank or some jacket potatoes coked on the exhaust manifold- much better flavour than micro wave and free!

Hi TC01,

Have you ever thought of installing a bed in a fish & chip van? I've seen plenty of these driving around with either steam or smoke coming out of their chimney. You could make yourself a few bob as well, selling fish & chips to the other campers. I reckon it would go down really well on the Sandringham site.

I just hope I never get the pitch next to you.

John.

Hi TC01- You can only cook while on the move, in a Winniebago, and then when you crash, you claim compensation from them. or so the myth goes, I dont belive you did it, and if you did, God help us all on the roads! chas

Its what they call fast food, be careful though you may get heartburn or other burns as a result.

My Dad used to cook baked potatoes in foil on the Austin 7 Manifold . Useful as hand warmers if we broke down which cars did a lot in those days I remember him under the bonnet or changing a wheel more often than the journeys themselves

Now - would this person put their head above the parapet? Wouldn't this have been better kept until 1 April

I don't see a problem with cooking on the move, Worse things happen at sea, and most boats come with cruise control as standard

In theory I suppose you could link an electric slow cooker up to an inverter linked to the leisure battery (which of course is charged up whilst on the move). You could then stick your veggies, meat etc in the pot and by the time you got to your destination a few hours or so later, it would be cooked and you'd have a nice easy meal.

You'd have to make sure it was well secured somewhere and of course you'd have to suffer the lovely aromas whilst it cooked which would tease you for hours ...!!!

Mel,
The idea of a slow cooker is not so daft, you could use a 12v model.

Many yeara ago I think it was tomorrows world programme tried to cook a meal wrapped in foil, on the manifold whilst the vehicle was on a long journey. I have a feeling it was'nt very successful.

The only thing I have ever cooked on the move was a Head Gasket, but it was too tough to eat.

Maybe you should have boiled it a little longer

sounds like a use for the shower tray that no one uses.
remoska hooked up to an inverter,stowed in the shower tray to catch the splashes and bingo,hot food for the stop !
if the remosk blurb is right you could even arrive to a full roast !!!!
